It's illegal and should not be used is where I stand my case.


Why?


It's illegal in my country, I trust them. And I am totally against all sort of smoking from before already.

I see no reason to legalize something that is illegal, then again there are a few countries where this already is legal.. I can't talk for them though

that and health + the addiction it can make (same for soda of any type)

Also drugs is a nice way to get into dangerous problems as well, to dangerous dealers or people to unclean needles or overdose.

Also for those wondering about how they have it in a place that has it legal in Europe of weed and such.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drug_policy_of_the_Netherlands

Sadly it does not stop the traffic, but at least make a "center" for it (even if its unhealth and cheap?)
I would not recommend buying it or the "safe bags" that they "promise" to work through the airport security.... *facepalm*
To the red light district, where shady business is going on.. but some has it as a job (sadly that also is a safety hazard for both sides)

Let me just get ths point across. ANY kind of smoking is bad for your health. However, there are less-harmful things you can smoke. Marijuana just happens to be one of those. I do not advocate it's use. I do however, advocate people can do whatever they want with or to their own bodies.




Pretty much this. I'd never encourage someone use it, and I'd never smoke it myself, but if you want to do it I won't tell you what you should or shouldn't do to your own body. That being said, I do make exceptions if someone gets high and endangers someone like a child by either smoking it around them or doing something really dumb like getting high and then trying to drive. I don't care if you want to smoke it, just do it responsibly.

No problem, sorry if I came out harsh. It's just who I am at times tbh I should've explained properly during my first post

I'm assuming you have never smoked it. Not saying you should, but everything you posted there is wrong. It seems to me that you are thinking of much heavier narcotics.

I have been smoking weed for 4 years, the simple truth is that some people get on with it, some don't. I think it's important to have the same prerogative on it as you would on anything else, don't knock it until you've tried it.

I personally love it as it has no negative repercussions on my wellbeing. I find watching anime stoned particularly enjoyable and inspiring. If you take a little time to look into any modern scientific research you will soon see that it has more than twice as many positive medical benefits as it does negative psychological side affects.

It kills your emotions and your feeling to care about any situation that doesn't affect your high. For example: "Baby crying? So what?" Sure, it removes some stress, but it does so by just making you not care about anything. That is why I view it to be a terrible thing.


That's THE harm--It creates passivity.
Not just passivity about any danger to one's self ("Oh, man, I just posted a YouTube of my falling down three flights of stairs, totally epic fail, lol!"), but about the outside world.
It reduces curiosity, it reduces empathy, it encourages selfishness, or at least to the point of most with a habit, to the point at which you wish the world would stop bothering you, or distracting you away from the Good Times. It causes one to adopt one's own paranoia-fueled conspiracy theories about Why Somebody Else Did It, or Why They're Out To Stop You From Doing Yours, and leap to conclusions about Why Everyone Else Is An Idiot, if something appears on TV that annoys you. (And you'll probably spend most of your time by the TV/computer, rather than go out in public, and shape your own jokes about the world based on corny pop-culture references, which is why anything from the 70's or 80's is insanely hilarious.)

IOW, it reduces your age to back before you tried to develop some independent and meaningful social identity of your own starting out in high school or college.

If you smoke, stay away from me, that is all. I hate the smell of tobacco and marijuana.

So I'm against legalization. I also hate the culture surrounding it, more so than probably weed itself.

I remember the the old PSA:

Wow, this has to be the stupidest argument I have ever read in my life. Weed does not reduce curiosity, if anything it enhances it. It does not make you less empathetic or encourage selfishness. Please leave your ignorant assumptions about cannabis at the door. You clearly have no experience with weed and you are creating theories out of fucking memes. How ignorant can you be dude, this is just blatant ignorance right here.

Benefits of recreational marijuana off the top of my head:

1.) New and easy hobby for you boring drones.
2.) New and easy way to socialize for you lonely pumpkins.
3.) Enhanced anime experiences for you troubled parasites.
4.) Instant relaxation for you working wage slaves.

Music sounds amazing, food tastes great; any physical downsides that come along with it are worth it in my book.

That being said, there's always a time and place for everything. I wouldn't want to smoke before meeting my drug-free parents, and social situations with big groups are a definite no-no for me.

Curiosity involves not only abandoning your own ideas, it involves appreciating others. And for that, you need every working brain cell you can GET. More than some people already have sober, in fact.

To be passive is to accept or reject any sensational idea without a test-drive, just on the experience of accepting it or rejecting it. Because it's different and cool.
Yes, it'll make you "curious" all right, enough to adopt the downright stupidest notions you will probably ever adopt in your life, and spend twice as much effort trying to explain them to people. Whether it's about religion or politics, or conspiracies, UFO's, or political conspiracies, or the conspiracy of religion, or the political conspiracies of hiding UFO's, or whether all four trace back to something the CIA deliberately put in the latest batch from Puerto Rico, one must be awake and aware of one's ideas enough in public to avoid the real longterm damage of weed: The irreparable social damage to one's dignity.

(It also helps one use a thesaurus, to avoid using the same limited words three or four times.)
